BOOK OF THE MOMENTThis 2017 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction tells the remarkable journey of one young woman’s escape from working on a southern cotton plantation in Georgia to try and make a new life in the north. The story is brutal but totally inspirational.
MISSED OPPORTUNITYThe assumption would be that ordinary people aren’t interesting, but Anne Tyler keeps us wonderfully absorbed with this short but thoroughly enjoyable tale about just that – a gem of a read for a lazy weekend.
THE WILD CARD‘The Enchanted April’ brings together four very different women looking to escape dreary London for the sunshine. Each independently take up the offer of an advertisement in the Times newspaper.
‘To those who appreciate Wisteria and sunshine. Small medieval castle to be let for the month of April’.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR
This month The Reading Den is delighted to share its February Bright Ideas. 'The Pursuit of Love' is a wonderful escapist novel and a timely read as it hits our TV screens next month. 'The Winter Soldier' is a story of love, regret and salvation set in WW1 and our Wild Card choice, 'By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept', is a remarkable work of poetic prose about living for love.
